tacit knowlege is knowlege of experience and explicit if knowlege of rationality

Tacit knowledge is the knowing of things without knowing how you know; explicit knowledge is the knowing of things that you can explain. For example, most people can speak grammatically without being able to explain the rules of grammar. This is Tacit knowledge. Explicit knowledge is that answer to 2X2.

In Project Management, Tacit Knowledge is the knowledge your co-worker knows, but isn't codified or written down; while Explicit Knowledge deals with knowledge that is written down and structured. For example, your co-worker knows how to fix Word when it chokes on an important document; but she is the only one. This is the Tacit Knowledge that Project Management tries to root out and codify. Once that knowledge is written down and saved somewhere it becomes explicit.

Tacit Knowledge : It is intuition driven knowledge and is almost very difficult to express through writing or verbalising.it is complex practical kowledge and it can only be implied. Ex. -1- Knowlege required for face recognition 2-knowledge pertaining to machines Implicit knowledge : It is like tacit knowledge, but differs, as it comprise a part of knowledge which is well communicable or transferable. means, Implicit knowledge = A Part of tacit Knowledge +A part of Explicit Knowledge. Ex. forcasting a risk here, one uses, risk heuristics (well stated and transferable) in addition to his tacit knowledge. Try yourself that, What should be explicit knowledge. Govind Singh KIIT

because one first needs to know the difference between data, information and knowledge (both explicit and tacit).IS is an element of the IT b'cause it opens up our minds and broadens them and gives us an opportunity to be able change our perceptions when it comes to reality and "the so called reality". And in order for one to have access to information, be able to generate infor, organize infor, retrieve infor and manipulate it where you can, one needs to be information literate and be able to find other means for information to be communicated through technology.

Express consent is when you actively go for consent.Tacit consent is when you passively accept consent.Added: To be more precise with the definition:Express consent is when you actively agree (either by voice or in writing) that you are in accord with a certain course of action.Tacit consent is assumed when you don't actually state your agreement, but raise no objection (in voice or in writing) to a certain course of action (i.e.; by standing 'mute).

Tacit means understood, implied, not stated, so a tacit software requirement is one that is understood, implied, and not stated, perhaps due to convention.
